Has anyone run a B&M 144 Supercharger on a mostly stock 302?

I’ve found a pretty good deal on one and may pick it up this weekend.

Started on my rearend build last night.
This is a stock 273 gear rearend I’ve had in my stash for a while.

Someone broke off the cross pin bolt and left it but I got it apart with an extractor.

Still wavering between 410 and 373. I have both gear sets on hand.
This will be a track rearend, I’ll keep the 355 rearend so I can swap back if I change what I use the car for.

Great news, our local track is open!
No spectators allowed, only driver and crew, and physical distancing enforced.

My dad wants to get out of the house so he may be my pit crew Friday night.

My rearend build stalled out because of lockdown so it looks like I’ll be keeping the 355 gears this season.

Wow the car ran great today.
So upgrades from last year are:
Line lock
Slicks
Front runners
Hurst shifter

Track prep was bad and this was the first weekend that the track was open so 1/8 mile only.

Car ran a best time of 8.72 @78mph

Very happy overall!

My competition is almost ready.
My dad has a MK3.1, same engine and gears as my car but his has an AOD.
We’re planning to race at the CK nationals in August, probably in the street car class which requires street tires so we will likely even be running the same rubber.

I’ve added a drive shaft loop and yesterday received current dated harnesses so dads car is almost ready to race!

Planning to go to test and tune this weekend,
Since I had the car jacked up to put the racing tires on I moved the upper control arm bolt to the lowest hole. I had some axle hop in the middle hole.
